Join us for the final Saints Collapse show, joined by Good Grief!, who are kicking off their Western Canadian tour, along with War Of The Minds and Bang Bang, You're Dead! This stellar night of rock'n'roll night will never be repeated -- and since the club won't be showcasing any more bands this summer, this will be the last hurrah for live rock music at Pub 340 until who knows when!

The SAINTS COLLAPSE - Originally writing and performing under the name This Week In History, this Vancouver-based rock outfit re-emerged as The Saints Collapse with a dark, film-inspired, genre-hopping EP, "The Seven Days of Fire". From guitarist Colin Pattullo's origins in shred-driven guitar rock to vocalist Jesse Castillo's pre-occupation with video game soundtracks and horror film scores, the band's chaotic range of influences is well represented as a euphonious whole. Offering material that strikes as eerily familiar while maintaining a unique sense of perspective, The Saints Collapse have delivered a rock record uninhibited by preconceived ideas of what rock music is supposed to be. http://www.myspace.com/TheSaintsCollapse

GOOD GRIEF! is a rock band that kicks your ass while satisfying your sweet tooth at the same time. The musical vision of Conor Brandt (Flipswitch, On Holiday, Voices in the Attic), the band features insightful lyrics, addictive melodies, and an edgy, straightforward sound that invokes the best days of the '90s with a modern twist. With a Western Canadian tour and 5-song EP planned for 2010, GOOD GRIEF! is quickly gaining momentum. http://www.myspace.com/GoodGriefBand

WAR OF THE MINDS transfuse their potent musical elixir directly into your bloodstream with a thrilling combination of intense guitars, commanding vocals and rollercoaster drums. Their riff-heavy music is dynamic and contagious with a darkly grooving edge, bridging epic guitar rock with female-fronted psychedelia into an explosive new sound. http://www.myspace.com/WarOfTheMinds

BANG BANG YOU'RE DEAD! is a new Vancouver-based pop punk band that features a potent mix of punk rock, clever lyrics, catchy hooks and a good measure of aggression. Their original songs highlight their unique arrangement of having both male and female lead vocals that explode in your face like 1000 zombies disco dancing with a hint of lavender! http://www.myspace.com/BangBangYoureDeadOnline

WAR OF THE MINDS

WAR OF THE MINDS can do things mere mortals can only dream of -- playing instruments with three hands at once, singing with forked melodies, winning music competitions held on other planets, and transfusing their potent musical elixir into your bloodstream with an intense combination of emotionally raw vocals, post-punk guitars, rollercoaster drums... more info
